Glomus jugulare tumors with intracranial extension.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

Glomus tumors provide unique surgical challenges for both tumor resection and defect reconstruction. Tumors with intracranial extension compound these challenges. Surgical techniques have evolved, and now, with a multidisciplinary team, single-stage surgeries are the standard. In this paper the authors will report the results of the Otology Group protocol for surgical management of glomus tumors with intracranial extension. Particular attention will be paid to prevention of cerebrospinal fluid leaks with the use of vascularized tissue for defect reconstruction.
